...to announce that my new book, 101 People Who Are REALLY Screwing America (and Bernard Goldberg is Only #73), is now available! (I mean, !!!) Where? I have no idea. Have you checked Barnes & Noble or Borders? If it's not there, it should be any day now. It is already available on Amazon.com. This simple click will take you to it.
The book is, of course, my liberal answer to Bernard Goldberg's absurd selection of America-screwer-uppers, which included not one member of the Bush Admin. Nobody responsible for the Iraq disaster, or for the lies and disinformation used to get is into it. No Dick Cheney, no Donald Rumsfeld or Scooter Libby or Paul Wolfowitz or Richard Perle....No one responsible for the pre-9/11 “intelligence” failures, or for illegal spying on Americans, or for sanctioning or ordering torture and a secret prison Gulag, or making sure the public and Congress know as little as possible about whatever they’re doing; nobody responsible for trying to subvert the Constitution by turning Congress and the courts into branches of the executive branch. Nobody in the administration responsible for suppressing scientific information about global warming, and about birth control, women’s health, AIDs prevention, consumer safety….Not one Republican member of Congress….Not Tom DeLay or any of his accomplices in the K-Street project, like Grover Norquist, who have created the worst big-money corruption of our government since Warren Harding….Nobody guilty of mis-educating the public about evolution and making us the laughing stock of the world by trying to replace science with Christian-fundamentalist mythology….Nobody who’s trying to convince Christians that liberals and Democrats are waging war against them; to divide the country and the world into two camps—Christians and everyone else; and to portray all Muslims as our enemies.
Sorry, didn't mean to rant like that. Well, my 101 People redresses those sins of omission, along with many of Goldberg's sins of commission.
Hope some you caught me on the Laura Flanders show on Air America earlier tonight, talking about the book....Hey, how did I do?
